|i'm going TMI
i need a family free journal that i can just get out my TMI thoughts in. i imagine some of you may want to just be on my other journal so if that is the case just defriend me on this one and stay on my other journal. i don't put enough in here anyway.
this will be to much information.

had a long talk with my mom last night. i've asked her not to tell my dad or anyone. she was very upset. no you're not supposed to understand this. most of you don't know or possibly remember. but i think its going to get me out of alot of unwanted family crap. and nobody is going to force me to hug anyone. Current Mood: numb

if you watch project runway angela's little "rosettes" are little quilt blocks called 'yo-yos' as in i like yo-yo quilts. i think angelas outfits are 80's extreme. and she should learn to sketch. its very important in the business of creating art.

outside of my port issues this time this was my best juicing. started having auras yesterday but never made it into seizures. if my hands hold up i'm going to go knit for a while, see if i can make some more progress. or maybe crochet. i'm still going to need to make some fingerless gloves for winter juicing.

|day 2 of juice
so wendy left the needle in my port yesterday--no biggie--but i must have crushed it against myself while i was sleeping. all 3 hours! i'm slightly mellow, 1 25mg benedryl and 1 norco (vicoden+)
had a small clot--no surprise--so mary had to pull it out a bit and wiggle it and it got great blood return.
kinda boring, aren't i? its all steroids on this side. Current Mood: blah

|still gettin juiced
decadron and solumedrol are not the same steroid. its like comparing transformers and decepticons. they are different.
so my bone density scan came back (surprisingly the neuro said) normal. remember to take your calcium. my t-spine came back with new lesions. legs/lower body getting worse.
i'm on my last option. chemo is not option again. either cytoxan or novantrone. just avonex, decadron and when tysabri comes out i wait for insurance approval.
and people think i should just wait and see without meds!

|i guess i'm looking old
my 'alternative dress' makes me look older my nurse said today. in 2 weeks i have been guessed that i am in my 30's. i'm only 28! scarves and long skirts aren't supposed to make you look that much older.
i just figured it was the chemo and steroids.

tomorrow starts my next 2 days of steroids. blech.

i'm trying to think of more interesting things to say...
my nap was shorter than usual today.
i don't have much ambien left and i don't know if my insurance will cover it.
|how cut is this?
i got a new icon! this is joe precious doing his miraculous squeeze into the sink routine. Current Mood: squishy

|just talked to doc.
must continue steroids every 2 weeks til tysabri comes out. am such a moon! Current Mood: lunch

|to continue or not
i call the neuro tomorrow to find out if i continue steroids, hopefully get my test results. maybe i should cut down to once a month. its just the question of is this hurting me more than helping? and is he going to take my opinion like he did with the chemo (no chemo, no questions) i'm so not sure.

|lunch with grandma and great aunt
or... welcome to the invisible illness!
they just don't get it. i look fine but i'm not fine. i'm getting worse. grandma finally understood but great aunt never got it.
of course they say i'm FINE! what else are they going to say? what a pain.
|Wednesday, March 1st, 2006|
i have steroids today. they left the needle in my pass-port and i woke up sleeping face down instead of on my back or side so my arm is a little tender. its better than trying to sleep with a heplock, i've had to take those out myself and they're worse to get in.

|kissing is like food
i keep thinking about do i want to be kissing or eating... i want to be full. eat or screw--only no man available. its just as well, i don't want to put forth effort and cramp up. i'm thawing polish food for dinner, only missing a cabbage. probably too tired to cook it. Current Mood: horny/hungry
